I never knew much about soccer until my daughter Larissa started playing. I'm learning as we go. She loves playing goalie and she had an awesome game this week.
Their opponents had the best player we've seen so far. (He scored while playing goalie. Just took the ball and zipped down the field.) He was an awesome player and he got a couple by her, but she did an awesome job of stopping his 1 on 1 attempts. He took one shot that caught her square on the eye (she's got a tad of a shiner). That knocked her out for a while, but she came back with a vengeance.
I didn't know she had all that in her. It's nice to be pleasantly surprised.
